David Moyes has issued a rallying cry to West Ham fans ahead of the new season, pledging to give them a team they can be proud of.
The Hammers boss is seeking much needed consistency and wants players hungry to fight for the shirt.

'The ends [seating areas] have been brought in closer to the pitch at the stadium and I want fans to come back thinking, 'We've got a team with exciting young talent that every week will give us total commitment.
'The model has to change. I want a club that's looking longer into the future. I don't want players who turn up at West Ham thinking, 'I'm going to put some money in my pocket and have a couple of nice years in London.'
'I want players arriving like Soucek did [from Slavia Prague]: hungry to take the next step.'
